I’m a bit of a hound dog when pregnant, I can smell a donut from a mile away and garlic bread from a cafe down the street. Once I am over the initial nauseous stage of the first trimester I really try to enjoy my heightened senses of pregnancy. These heightened senses intensify the flavors and smells of food, making everything so much more enticing and delicious, at least for me. Now I’m in my second trimester and I’m excited to talk more about food and share resources that will help you easily create your very own pregnancy eating plan.
Last month I wrote about foods and drinks to avoid when pregnant but now it is time to talk about all the wonderful foods that a pregnant woman can and should enjoy. Many women are confused about exactly how much food they should be eating each day, let alone understanding what it means to be “eating for two” when pregnant.
